Yes, we should set up a film noir topic. I found a copy of "Sabotage", John, I'll put it on my list of films to watch.

Did anyone check out this great old movies website, including loads of film noir?:

Would the 1961 film, Victim with Dirk Bogarde and Sylvia Syms be a noir ?

Interesting question, Ray, but I don't think so. "Victim" was more of a 'social message' film about gay blackmail in the UK at a time when being gay was illegal - the law was only changed in 1967, I believe.
Wikipedia: "Victim is a 1961 British film directed by Basil Dearden, starring Dirk Bogarde and Sylvia Syms. It is notable in film history for being the first English language film to use the word "homosexual". On its release in Britain it proved highly controversial and in America it was initially banned."

Amazon: "What many don't realize is that this movie is credited with helping to decriminalize homosexuality in Britain. When "Victim" was released, it started a nationwide discussion about homosexuality and associated blackmail. At the time, approximately 90% of all blackmail cases involved homosexuals, and Bogarde's character was a classic example of a blackmail "victim". The point of the movie wasn't that all homosexuals were victims, but they could only be victims so long as the law permitted it. The blackmail wasn't merely because they were homosexual, but due to the harsh prison sentences a homosexual could (and often did) receive. How often does a movie get the opportunity to help create such a profound change in society?"
We do have at least one famous British film noir, Peggy Cummings in "Gun Crazy":

Was Julie a box office success ? I loved the movie...It was a bit corny in a few places but I did like it alot . As I have mentioned on here before even the great Hitchcock movies were a bit corny. Just wondering if Julie was a box office hit ???

Hey Suzie...nice to see you. I have missed you on the forum.
JULIE was a mild box office hit, but the song was nominated for an Academy Award.

Hi Suzie

According to Paul Brogan, “Julie” – Box Office Gross (USA) -was $2,800,000, so if you add video sales since, plus hopefully DVD sales, I'm sure it made a profit and will continue to.

I have it on an old VHS tape and really enjoy it. I just wish it will come out on DVD with some others that are not on DVD yet.

I loved the Julie banners of the forum. I think that if the movie had been in color it might of had a bigger success in the box office. We would have been able to enjoy that marvelous landscape and those sparkling eyes of Ms. Day.

Yes, great Puck - although Doris looks like she's got a slight touch of hay-fever in that photo! :) Still great, though! Thanks.

Yes, it seems to be so, did you know that in this movie she totally not smiling, very serious, and yes I find this drama very well, she played the role prefect my eyes.
I have some other pictures of this beach scene. And I have one were she is smiling, this one is a portrait with Louis Jourdan.

She doesn't look like she's enjoying that, does she?

I did have a great pic from Julie of her standing next to a piano looking very beautiful - I think Louis was in it too - a publicity shot that I don't think was in the film - do you have that one, Puck?
